30 minutes
HD70 .C5 M33 2001

As Western companies become more interested in networking and partnering, doing business the Chinese way may become the next big thing in corporate methodologies. This program describes key elements of modern Chinese entrepreneurship, such as teamwork, harmony, deference to authority, and guanxi - a system of interpersonal relations that stresses convenantal rather than contractual agreements - that differentiate it from the traditional Western model. The strengths and weaknesses of both systems are weighed by the chairman of DHL International Ltd. and others, providing a balanced analysis of business in both the Asia-Pacific region and the global marketplace.
